Story by: Craig Fuller, CEO at FreightWaves
Country Wide RV Transport (CWRV), the nation’s second-largest RV and motor-home transportation provider, is shutting down for good, according to information received late Friday by FreightWaves.
The 540 drivers that currently work for the recreational vehicle transport company will be out of work effective November 1st. The news was first reported on the blog Freight Broker Live., which included a screenshot of an email sent to the company’s employees.
The CWRV site says the company is an exclusive hauler for RV retail chain Camping World (NYSE: CWH).
CWRV uses independent contractors to transport recreational vehicles and motor homes from the factory and retail stores to consumers that purchased the vehicles. The company’s website says a driver must supply at least a 3/4 ton truck and necessary hitches and towing equipment. According to Fuller’s article.
Around 4200 truck drivers lost their jobs in September only according to the article in the Business Insider
